Even though it's uncomfortable, I need to be gentle with myself (my new mantra) and let things unfold as they are meant to. When I think things should be moving faster, more followers, more shares, more comments, I need to remind myself that Kelly Rae moved along in very small steps as well.
I need to remember that I have made magical, unforeseeable things happen in my life. Ask me sometime about when I 'secreted' my way to a free trip to Paris for my 30th birthday.
I need to remember that I have done other things in my life where I had no idea what I was doing and I was scared to death someone would figure out I was a total fraud. Like that time I ran off an worked in pictures for a few years before coming back to the real world. I started out completely green and ended up being the only local that the studio took with them when they moved on to the next location.
I need to remember these things. I need to put away my yardstick and allow the magic of my life to unfold in it's own time and space. The Universe did not bring these amazing role models into my awareness for no reason. Not just into my awareness, but in fact, into my path as I'm lucky enough to call Jes my friend and will be making my way to Brave Girls Camp this summer, where I'll spend a few days with Melody. But the Universe surely didn't put them in my path to judge myself against either. Nay, nay Miss Hannah. Role models are for inspiring you, and for helping to fill your bucket. And I'm grateful for that.
I'll leave you with this quote from Theodore Roosevelt... 'Do what you can, with what you have, from where you are.' That's where I am now friends. Moving forward with what I have, from where I am. I hope you'll join me somewhere along the way.
